A prelate of the Trinity Cathedral Episcopal Church, Rev. Dr. James B. Selle, has cautioned Liberians to vote wisely in the imminent 2023 General Elections as a means of transforming Liberia.
“We all know the elections are coming both in the Episcopal Church in 2022 and Liberia in 2023, so let us be careful of who we are electing. We should chose people who are proving themselves to be able to use power wisely,” he cautioned.
Delivering sermon on Sunday, at the installation of five Honorary Cannons to Trinity Cathedral Episcopal Church of Liberia, Rev. Selle pointed out that many of Liberians’ problem come from the misused of power and authority or by putting the wrong individual in position or power.
According to him, as a result, those who are supposed to be servants for the people will then become their masters to oppress and use them to get what they want.
He added, ”Power can be used for good and evil. And so, power is not good unless those who have it are good. The issues of ‘so say one, so say all’ is gone, and this is the time of change in leadership and time of consultation and Liberia needs a leadership who knows and have passion for his people and country at large.”
Meanwhile, five clergy men were on Sunday, installed as honorary cannons to Trinity Cathedral Episcopal Church of Liberia following their services rendered the ministry over the years.
Those installed include; Rev. Theodora N. Brooks, Priest-in-Charge of the St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in the USA; Rev. Dr. Anne Fredericks Cooper, Priest of the Trinity Cathedral on Broad Street in Monrovia, and Rev. Fr. Peter M. Inuwa, Rector of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Paynesville.
Others are Rev. Fr. Michael Tuan Sie, Sr., Rector, of the St. Thomas Episcopal Church on the Camp Johnson Road in Monrovia, and Rev. Dr. James T. Yarsiah, Priest-in-Charge of the St. James and St. Michael the Archangel Episcopal Churches in the USA.
However, speaking following his installation, Rev. Fr. Michael Tuan Sie, Sr., Rector, of the St. Thomas Episcopal Church lauded the leadership of the Ministry for the confidence reposed in him to serve God in another area of the church, and thereby attributed his preferment to the support of his family and congregation, while at the same time vowed to work assiduously in making the voice of God through the Trinity Cathedral Church loud in Liberia.
